Not in conspiracy theory mode... I am genuinely confused. How are we supposed to know whether Britney is posting to her own social media or not? We heard (in articles from legitimate sources) all about those people who control her social media. Has that stopped just because she has her own lawyer now?

I'm wary of reading too much into her social media posts either way.

Why would the people who were controlling her social media be posting complaining about the people who were controlling her?

I think people are assuming that she now has control because the content is more aligned with what she is saying in court.

I know Britney isn't the same Britney she was 20 years ago, but it's confusing to me too. The social media posts don't sound like how she did in court.

Does anyone know where Lynn is with all of this?

Celebrities piss away their money and file bankruptcy all the time. Britney's entitled to make the same terrible decisions people have for decades. Just because she sounds and acts like a child doesn't mean anyone has the right to parent her. 

Agree. It's her life and her money. I don't think she'll ever go broke, but I'm honestly surprised she doesn't have more of it if it's been tightly controlled for so long. Was she really that bad a spender? Britney is well-known to snack on Cheetos, eat McDonald's food, and shop at Walmart. She's never struck me as someone who spent crazy money.

Her finances are well documented because of the conservatorship. It depends on what you think is crazy money. One of her dogs cost $8,000 and she spends over $20,000 a year on the dogs. She spends around $400,000 year. Of course, that is under the control of the conservatorship and she spends more money supporting the conservatorship than she does on herself. 
I think the bigger concern with her money is that she will trust the wrong person again.

Oh absolutely. The concern isn't that she'll spend all of her cash on new shoes and fake plants for her house, but rather than she will make bad business decisions, sign on with a bad management contract, invest in snake oil sales, make a business deal with a Nigerian prince and the like. But again, that's her choice. I mean, if we could take over our family member's finances just based on shitty decision-making, I would have started managing my siblings' finances decades ago.

The description I heard about her social media when it was controlled was that it was a mix of wanting her to seem well (basically happy to perform and not trapped) but also erratic and loopy (to show why she needed the conservatorship). Thus, the story about her burning down her gym with a candle or whatever. I haven't watched any of it myself.

She made a video saying that she did it and then TMZ reported that it didn't happen. It certainly looked all her.

What I don't get is she said she can't do this and can't do that. She can't go to the beach and such but she has posted and we have seen pictures of her on the beach or in Hawaii. I can't say I don't believe anything she says but I do take it all with a big whole grain of salt. I tend to not believe her more than I believe her.

I also wonder about things like "I can't have coffee".  I know people who can't have coffee and it's not because someone is controlling what they drink. It's because a doctor has told them that they can't have coffee because it's bad for their health or can't with their medication. I wonder if that is the case here.

But Britney’s  people care about her ( even if only for the money). Who does Kanye have? A Kardashian?

If they only care about her for the money than they don’t give a shit about her as a person. Kanye has a lot of people in his circle who have been around before the Kardashians.

Her posts now are openly embracing #freeBritney. The idea that the people who are controlling her would make those posts makes no sense to me.

I read Ronan Farrow's article on Britney, very eye-opening.

For those that don’t want to deal with The New Yorker website Ronan and co-author Jia Tolentino were on Jon Lovett’s, Ronan’s fiancé, Lovett or Leave It podcast on July 10 to discuss it and mention several items that aren’t in the article.

Just getting rid of the conservatorship will get her a lot of money she's losing now

Not anymore he doesn't. It makes you wonder when someone like Kanye is still walking around free ( and he was also held on a 5150 ) while Britney is under a conservatorship.

I'm not into sports but am fascinated by Olympics-related chaos/nonsense. This was unexpected, though: Cornelius resigns from Tokyo Olympics gig after history of school bullying resurfaces

Quote

Japanese musician Cornelius—real name Keigo Oyamada—resigned from the creative team for the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics after interviews from the mid-1990s resurfaced in which the composer proudly admits to brutally bullying classmates with disabilities for years. This comes days before the opening ceremony of the contentious Olympic Games. Many people questioned Oyamada’s role of overseeing the music for the Olympics and Paralympics.

The abuse he inflicted on his classmates is truly horrific.

I agree and I'd like to know why that school didn't EXPEL  him and send him to reform school instead of letting him graduate! Horrible!

Why was he not arrested?!?  That went beyond bullying to assault, and his apology is worthless.  “Bully” is too nice a word for what he did.

Yea I read that article and at first after reading the headline about bullying I was expecting like wedgies and locking people in their lockers. This was physical/sexual assault. Calling it bullying is stupid.

Plus if it is the Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremonies we are talking about, why not just get Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Super Mario brothers and Legend of Zelda to produce the damn thing?

There's enough troubles behind the Olympics to write a small book about them.

Most notably the fact that there's barely any infrastructure outside of major cities needed to host the Olympics - which means they cannot possibly choose different cities each year as they have been doing since the modern games inception.

Rockets have always looked phallic. But that one more than most. Which is why we should invent artificial gravity. Do you want the Millennium Falcon or a giant dick? It's no contest.

My family went a couple weeks ago.   Had a great time but they are suffering from a severe employee shortage and as a result, many of the food venues had reduced hours or were closed altogether.  I don't know that it impacted the shows, but I felt that a couple of the rides were down randomly and I wondered if it wasn't personnel related instead of maintenance.   

The cinnamon bread and the fireworks/drone show both live up to the hype.

I haven’t gone, but my parents did a few years ago and were delighted when Dolly made an impromptu appearance by coming on stage and singing a song and thanking everyone for coming to visit!  It made their year!

Well. 

Brisbane has been chosen as a city for the 2032 Games. Clearly the powers that be have no intention of slowing down.

Here's an article with some more info.

Robin Williams' son, Zak, says his father's misdiagnosis frustrated his own father

Fucking sad. And I didn't know his son, Zak, struggled with mental issues after Williams' suicide...it makes it all the more tragic.

Of course the sad irony is that I have to wonder if the rest of the family might have become so focused on the older Mr. Williams's downward spiral that the younger one's angst might not have been addressed or even noticed. Please understand that I am NOT blaming any member of the Williams family for what happened with the younger Mr. Williams but it's not uncommon for families who   witness  major catastrophes from one family member to not even think that others within could also have their own anguish.

Britney Spears regains the right to drive herself...and is promptly photographed driving and using her cell phone at the same time. Which is of course, illegal, and also comes one day after her boyfriend got into a car accident.

My car is not even close to costing $155,000, & when I drive I take calls through my radio. I'm sure Britney's car must be able to do the same. Also, is she stupid????? Does she think her father isn't keeping a list of everything she fucks up to prove she still needs to be under a conservatorship?

It's not really new, though. As someone earlier in the thread posted, he was spouting off incredibly racist bullshit even back in the 70s.

At least as early as 1976, when the racist quotes are from; nothing new, but every time it's repeated, it shocks more of the audience who only knows him as a guitar god and is reading/hearing it for the first time.

He doubled down for decades, and then in recent years blamed his "semi-racist" comments on substance abuse, pulling out the old "I have Black friends, dated Black women, and championed Black music" defense (ridiculous on its own, but also whitewashing his appropriation of Black music) yet still writing the whole thing off as funny. 

Clapton has been a known asshole for a long time; this Covid-specific nutbaggery was first revealed last year, but the overall attitude is well established.

Whether she needs to be under a conservatorship and her father being her conservator are two separate issues. Using a cell phone while driving isn’t evidence that she needs to be under a conservatorship. 

No, but one of her complaints was that she was too controlled. Now the first thing she has done is give him something to show why she was controlled, because the first thing the idiot did was break the law. I mean seriously, what the hell was she thinking???? This was such a dumb ass move. How can she not understand that she has to be careful about what she does?
